Charles Jung, Executive Director of the California Asian Pacific American (APA) Bar Association and organizer with the Asian Justice Movement, joins Jerry to talk about growing up in the Midwest (and Korea!), his journey through law and becoming a lawyer, and being part of the Asian American community in the Bay Area.. Listen in as Charles and Jerry talk about the Korean American experience, advocating for the voiceless in our community, and what we can do to take action to protect each other.
Charles is a trial attorney who loves practicing law. His focus is both defending companies in employment/wage cases, and representing executives, professionals, and founders in internal investigations and high-level separations. In his employment and wage & hour defense practice, his clients have ranged from large publicly-held companies to smaller, privately-held businesses.
Charles helps executives tell their true stories, reclaim their reputations, and find redemption inside and outside the courtroom.
Charles has substantial experience in trade secrets/employee mobility litigation and in class action litigation. He is a frequent commentator in the legal press on these topics.
